Ms. Beth and Ms. Emily’s 1st grade science class recently explored the force of magnetism. They have learned that there is a North and South pole to every magnet. Through experimentation and compiling class data, students have concluded that magnets are only attracted to certain metals and no other type of substance. Students also have experimented with magnets interacting over a distance. They realized the force of magnetism can act on an object even when they aren’t touching! They also realized that opposite poles attract each other while like poles repel each other.
